5 easy health swaps that won’t freak you out!

We all know how hard it can be to keep up with a healthy lifestyle.

One minute you’re living off apples, jogging every day… the next you’re three tubs in to an ice cream feast knowing you’ll regret it tomorrow but you just can’t quite bring yourself to care yet… No? Just us?

*ahem*

Anyway.

Over here at Jacks, we get it! it can be hard constantly trying to eat right or exercise every day, so here’s a list of helpful small tips to help you on your way.

1) Swap sitting at your desk for standing.

While exercising is the most effective way to burn calories, making this simple change can be very beneficial.
When compared to an afternoon of sitting, standing burned an additional 170 calories, that’s almost 1000 extra calories burned a week from basically doing nothing![1]

2) Swap driving for walking.

Again so simple! We realise not everybody has this luxury, sometimes you gotta drive.
However, if it’s possible to do a 10-minute walk over a two-minute drive – go for it! You’ll burn more and more calories this way and just think of all the money you’ll save on petrol, which you can use to buy more jerky! – it’s win win!

3) Swap fizzy drinks for mineral water.

Trust us, your teeth and skin will thank you. Bubbles with a fraction of the sugar

4) Swap the late-night screen time for some ZZZ’s.

Whatever your poison – Netflix, Stan, cat videos, zit popping videos, Facey… Technology use straight before bed can make it harder to fall and reduce the quality of your sleep[2]. Sleep is vital for a healthy life! So maybe tonight turn the screens off and hit the hay a little earlier.

 

5) Swap out unhealthy snacks for some Jack!

*Shameless plug alert*
Have we mentioned just how good for you Jack Link’s is? It’s an amazing source of protein and low in fat. So next time you find yourself reaching for a chocolate bar, stop and grab a tasty pack of Jack Link’s instead!
